Today's youth face many challenges, both old and new. How can mentoring programs help leverage those challenges into opportunities?
Consider the problems of gambling and substance misuse, which are prevalent among young people. For instance, 17% of youth reported gambling 52 or more times in the past year, and the same percentage of youth drank five or more drinks on 12 or more days in the past year, according to a recent study in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.
The Journal noted that 10% of youth reported having three or more gambling problems in the past year, and 15% of young people reported having three or more alcohol problems.
On Thursday, August 6, I will discuss this topic with my guest Dr. Jim Kooler. Jim’s career has focused on helping youth become active leaders and resources in their communities. He is the administrator of the California Friday Night Live Partnership, the highly successful youth engagement program that is widely regarded as a landmark state-mentoring program. He has also served as deputy director of the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs and director of the Governor’s Mentoring Partnership in California. Jim holds a BA in psychology and a Masters and Doctorate in Public Health from UC Berkeley.

Join us today on Women Leading the Way Radio as Michelle Bergquist, your host of Women Who Lead, interviews Kate Carroll, Director of Global Process at Ingram Micro.
Kate brings us a discussion from the corporate women’s point of view! Kate has seen many forms of management & leadership development programs. Kate’s current hot button is driving learning programs that drive results. She focuses on those that are preparatory for taking on a larger role in the org. Those that provide exposure to concepts and business scenarios while offering related projects within the business are the best. It combines the educational and experiential and helps weed out participants who are not ready. It can be a very complex environment, but one where women ARE on the front lines.
Kate has a long standing career with the same employer that grew like crazy through the tech boom, and because of that, she has had tons of opportunity to learn new things, transfer around the organization, try roles outside her comfort zone, and advance. The growth trajectory meant she was often acting quickly to market needs and valued associates who were adaptable, inclusive, and creative. Mentors have had a large impact for her, from her mother to professional advocates!
As the CEO and Co-Founder of Connected Women of Influence, Michelle Bergquist is a passionate advocate for women in business. At Connected Women of Influence, we believe that more women need to lead in business and everything we do is center-focused on designing platforms, programs, connections and collaborative opportunities for b2b women to prosper, succeed and lead the way in business today!

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES WIH TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS...NACCTEP
TRIUMPH LEARNING presents NACCTEP president Eric Barnawill on the roles of CC's and why it might be a very good idea for future teachers to start off at CC.?
Dr. Willie Wilson, International Businessman, national television personality, and former Mayoral Candidate, yesterday formerly announced his Presidency for the United States. In our first hour, we'll take a look at what it takes to create a believable campaign in order to run and win the office. Will the American public believe in Dr. Wilson? Can he end war and violence? "It Takes a Village to Raise A Child" is the often repeated African proverb. But it also takes a child to raise a village and motivate village members to work together. In our second hour, we'll talk toLatonya Johnson, Founder of Latonya & Youth of Englewood. She united with others in the Englewood Community of Chicago to create summer programs that develop children's talents and entreprenurial skills. Rather than blame the Mayor, the Governor or even the President of the United States, every adult must step up and be an active member of the community. Her organization is planning a fashion show designed to raise the self esteem of young people and prepare them for a successful future.
Join host Dave Etter and assorted callers as they discuss the Family Readiness Programs for each service. Are they of any use to us men? Are they completely obsolete? Dave has answers to alot of FRG questions, but, what is your take? Keep em or junk em?
MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based call-in radio show (516-453-9167), hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Airs Fridays at Noon CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.
How to get out of your own way so that you can sell your high end programs-
I was inspired to write this since I’m getting so many emails and new clients that are having issues around confidence in their business. If you lack confidence then you’ll not charge what you’re worth, you’ll sabotage your success, and play small. There are many myths I want to dispel about putting yourself out there to attract more clients.
MYTH You need years of experience. Who says? This simply isn’t true, if you can help people get results this is proof. Bottom line people want to know you can help them.
MYTH You have to figure out your high end program before you offer them. Absolutely not. My first program I had an outline of what I wanted to teach and the benefits for people. I was on fire with what I was teaching others and realized you have to be able to sell an IDEA first. An idea can be put together quickly to attract your ideal paying clients. Stop over thinking it and start offering what you know.
Make sure you have the following:
What it helps people with (people buy RESULTS/benefits)
How you will deliver it (online, offline, webinar, teleclass, membership portal)
Have a sales guide where you can walk someone through to find out what they are looking for
MYTH I have to charge what the market dictates. Nope. This isn’t true. Whatever you feel you’re worth you can charge. It has to be aligned with with who you are. I’ve invested so much in my business that I’ve set my prices according to what I feel I’m worth and the potential results that my clients can create. I’m simply not going to discount my prices because I know and own my value.
